Missing Germantown Man’s Body Found in Delaware

February 11, 2019

The body of Germantown resident Odu was found by police search teams in Delaware, after the man had been missing for almost three weeks.

   The 66-year-old man, Osogho I. Odu, of the 18200 block of Swiss Circle was located on Saturday, Feb. 9 during, a joint search operation between Delaware State Police, Delaware Fish & Wildlife Natural Resources Police, Delaware State Parks Natural Resources Police, and Montgomery County Police with the assistance of Delmarva, Maryland SAR and Chesco Volunteer search teams. Authorities were conducting a search in the area of Fort DuPont State Park in Delaware City, Del, near the area where Odu’s vehicle was located on January 25.

   Odu was first reported missing by his family on Thursday, Jan. 24 when they received a telephone call from him, stating that he was having car trouble just over the Montgomery County line in Howard County. According to MCPD spokesperson Rick Goodale, before calling the police the family set out to find him at the location where he’d run into car trouble, but neither Odu or the car was found in the area. At this point, the family became very concerned and reported him missing.

   Montgomery County detectives placed Odu and his vehicle, a gray 2017 Hyundai Tucson with Maryland tags: ICT5531, into the missing persons database. The next day, on Friday, Jan. 25 police in Delaware reported finding Odu’s gray Hyundai Tuscon 120 miles away from Germantown in Delaware City. His vehicle was located near the Reedy Point Bridge of the Fort DuPont State Park in Delaware City. However, investigators have not located Odu.

   Over the weekend, an extensive search for Odu was undertaken by several different agencies in the area where his vehicle was found and his body was located and recovered.

   The Delaware State Police will be conducting the investigation into the circumstances surrounding the death of Odu, according to police.
